Lupus Awareness Month
Lupus Awareness Month is the time of year when the lupus community takes time to educate their families, workplaces and neighborhoods about lupus. Education can be as modest as sending an email to your friends and family about lupus to organizing a Lupus Awareness Day at your office. We encourage you to get creative as you raise awareness about this often misunderstood disease.
Please let us know what you’re up to – you may inspire others in the lupus community to take action! Email [email protected] or call Mary at 312-648-6053.
Go Purple for Lupus by using purple light bulbs or stringing purple lights around your home or work place. Whenever someone asks about the color change, talk about lupus. If lights don’t work, decorate with anything purple (a purple ribbon, purple balloons, etc) that might invite anyone who sees it to ask about it.
